A Khmer-Vietnam Friendship primary school was inaugurated in Cambodia’s Siem Reap province on February 27 to enable children in far-flung areas in the locality to get access to education.

The two-classroom wooden school, funded by Vietnam ’s Southern Television Station, is rested on the Tonle Sap ­Lake in remote Ta Neang village, Kongpong Khleng commune, where children yet reach any forms of education.

Lessons at the school will be first taught on Vietnamese and later on Khmer language as the village is home to both overseas Vietnamese and Cambodians.

Chairman of Kongpong Khleng communal People’s Council Touch Sothia praised Vietnamese donors’ assistance given no school was ever built in the area.

At the inauguration ceremony, Vietnamese donors presented clothes, books and utensils to overseas Vietnamese and poor Cambodians living in the village.-VNA
